The sunrise here is 7:30 am. Church bells tolled to call worshippers to gather. I decided this is a good time for my morning solo walk.
My choice was a simple route of going around the pier. There were hardly any pedestrians or bikers. A few sat by the pier either sipping their coffee or contemplating. An easy, leisurely island life at its best.
Pedestrians walkway and bikers lanes are clearly marked with international symbols. Only caution was sudden change of heights which could differ as much as 2 - 3 feet.
The morning sun lit the hillside giving me a better appreciation of the topography. Syros is hilly and once away from the port frontage, you have to navigate narrow streets with multiple stairs. It is understandable how the hills were a physical advantage from the constant threat of a pirate raid.
